    From a commercial perspective, Eddie Kendricks fared better as a solo artist than David Ruffin. Mostly because David was shuffled around with different producers which made his early albums sound...

    Edwin Starr and Brick had more than enough hits for their own episodes. Especially since “Soul 4 Real” got on despite only having two major hits.

    If it’s “ Sexual Healing”, I sure as hell hope not! They couldn’t get permission to use the Motown era recordings, so it’s centered around his last 3 years of life. There were more superior biopics...

    Bobby Taylor sang background vocals along with Michael, Jermaine & Jackie on the songs that he produced.

    A few more myths involving Tammi Terrell!

    People believe that she was Marvin’s “side piece” when she was no more than a surrogate little sister to him.

    Of course the story that she was married...

    It’s somewhat understandable that people would believe Aretha Franklin was Motown, since she was from Detroit and was close friends with several Motown artists. But James Brown?! Really?! I’m with...

    To be fair to the producers of the show, they have reached out to some 70s artists like Enchantment and the Stylistics. However, they declined to participate because they don’t want to reopen old...

    Personally, I think Brick and Edwin Starr need their own episodes. But, something is better than nothing I guess.

    Probably because he hated the song and wants to act like it never happened! Also the fact that he recorded hundreds of songs and written thousands more, it’s understandable that he have little to no...

    My guess it was a jab at Frank Wilson, whom Norman helped groom to become the successful producer he was at that time. Especially since he was working with Eddie Kendricks on his solo material.
  12. That Damned C word claims Sonny Turner of the Platters!

    He’d been battling throat cancer and sadly has passed at 83. Easily one of THE most underrated soul singers in the history of the genre and in the history of the Platters. May he and the rest of the...

    Optimal Saint, long time no see! I believe MJ stuck to his own catalog as an adult pop star. But I’m sure he regularly performed covers on early J5 shows until they had enough original songs to fill...

    Now that we finally got some credible receipts, I can now give a solemn RIP to one of the great unsung heroes of Motown! Thanks for the music!

    Bob Sagat has passed at 65

    He was found unresponsive in his hotel room in Orlando. My condolences to his family, friends and fans. I used to love him on AFV back in the day.

    That’s the main reason why her death hits hard for me. So close to the century mark, but I guess she just got tired.

    FTR I never could get into the Golden Girls, but Betty White would turn up on...

    Mary Wells could have been with Motown to her dying day and the Supremes still would have been the label’s biggest act. Giving that HDH was turning out the hits for them.
    But most of Mary’s success...
  19. Did Mary Wells leaving Motown benefit the Marvelettes?

    Obviously, with the recent passing of Wanda Young, I’ve been playing my copy of “Forever More” in my car the past couple of days. And I’m noticing some similarities between her and Mary Wells on...

    Even though her failing health was open knowledge since the 90s, I’m still stunned by this terrible news. The Marvelettes stay on rotation in my house. Rest well, Ms. Young!

    He was a sideman/guitarist for the O’jays prior to their 70s heyday. Not much information otherwise except he was in the army and had been living in Ohio.

    Given the fact that Joe Simon had been living low key since the 80s, we never could get any updates on his health. Apparently he was 8 years older than we all thought [[that’s PR for you I guess)....

    This really sucks! Even though she was only a background vocalist, I still hold her and rest of the Sweethearts in high regard for their contributions to the Philly Sound. RIP Ms. Benton!

    If Marv were here for this release, he’d be dancing a jig right now.

    Agreed, but I feel like it rebounded somewhat in the 90s. However, after Luther and Gerald died, what little spark it had burned out.
